Seems like I will have to buy the program for windows as the zip decoder that comes with XP will not work with tar

I found two freeware programs that might support tar:

http://qzip.cjb.net/
http://www.coffeecup.com/zip-wizard/

If someone tests and finds out, please post.

Winzip does support .tar, I just installed it yesterday. :)

Previously I used an old version of Netzip which I found does not apparently support .tar.

While browsing around, I found a mention of Easyzip, freeware that supports .tar.

WinAce handles all these, so does WinZip and WinRar, they are not freeware but have no limitations whatsoever in the nonregistered versions

if it is a .tar.gz does winzip recognize it? I dont have a pc here, or I would try it.

PowerArchiver is an alternative that handles .tar .tar.gz and .tar.bz2.

If you are ok with a command line, install CygWin on your Windows box and you can actually use "tar" and "gzip" ;-)
